(Oct. 5/17) On October 1, the general minimum wage increased to $11.60/hour with proportional increases to the student wage and alcohol server wage. In two short months the general minimum wage is scheduled to increase to $14.
Restaurants Canada is pushing hard for mitigation measures to offset the cost of the minimum wage increases to your business and is in discussions with key ministries and the premier’s office.
